Chateau la Nerthe Châteauneuf-du-Pape 'Cuvee des Cadettes' 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

The "Cuvée des Cadettes" was the name originally given to one of Château la Nerthe's cuvées by Commandant Ducos and which was reintroduced in 1986. The name comes from a very old parcel of the vineyard. Included in this cuvée are Grenaches from century-old vines, old Mourvèdres and old Syrahs, all vinified together in a wood pigeage tank. The maturing takes place exclusively in new barrels. Blending • Grenache 47 % • Mourvèdre 17 % • Syrah 36 % Vinification 18 days in pigeage tanks for 71% Matured 100 % in barrels for 18 months

Left it 2 years too long. It was amber in color, bitter and flat on the palate, no aromas. Oxidized.

Complex nose of ripe fruits and spice, herbs. Elegant palate, poise over power. Ripe, long finish. Ready to drink or could hold. Lovely stuff.

A seductive wine that's rich and ripe, thick and delightful, filling the palate with sweet fruit that cascades in a symphony of subtle violet, plum and blackberry--all presented in a creamlike texture that sets off a song and dance of pleasure on the... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 1999 Chateau de la Nerthe Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Cadettes 750ml
